And my granddaughter was Marshall’s age & they loves playing with one another, in fact my granddaughter & Marshall & Jinju are actually cousins!!! Brandi was such a beautiful soul, & simply loved her kid’s!! My heart goes out to Brandi’s family, sending my condolences. My deepest thoughts & prayer’s goes out to Brandi’s family, especially her children. I simply can’t even Fathom what Marshall & especially Jinju are going through 😪😢😭😭😭 May God wrap his arms around Brandi’s family, especially her children to comfort them, heal them, protect them, bring peace, & to be with them every step of the way. 😇💖🙏🙏 I’ll ALWAYS & FOREVER cherish the good memories I had with Brandi, along with her kid’s. I’ll NEVER forget what a wonderful friendship I had with Brandi, & the amazing person Brandi was.

I have not had contact with Brandi in quite a few recent years. But I remember when she would come over to my house with her Aunt Kathy when she was about 10...we spent a lot of time in our hot tub just talking and laughing. We had some good times and she was such a sweetheart. My prayers are with Brandi's family.
